Military Law Comission Recommends Dumping Sodomy Ban
Interesting news this morning:
Prestigious Military Law Commission Recommends Scrapping Sodomy Ban (Opens in a new window.)
The press release is from the Palm Center.
I don't feel like I need to comment much, other than to observe that the conclusions of the commission are encouraging, since they are consistent with what so many of us have argued for so long. In particular, the finding that the military already has the tools to punish criminal sexual conduct independent of the sodomy ban is a welcome statement, since it reinforces the reality that the problem isn't with gays or lesbians, but with inappropriate conduct by anyone.
Of course there is also the rather obvious conclusion that the ban is enforced arbitrarily. But we already knew that. 🙂
